Its actually a WMA54 ... can I change the programmer?
... I mean can I physically replace it? Is it easy to do that? Does it cost a lot? Is it worth it ... or should I go back to the 50's and do it all by hand (just kidding!) ... I have moved to France and now I only use cold water cycles but the machine does not seem to be able to follow any of the programmes without causing it either to stop or continue on the same part of the cycle - unless I manually change it by pressing the appropriate button ... even then it seems to get confused and pause - so if I press the "Start" button - it momentarily goes back to the previous part of the cycle - then move on to the one it has just completed ... and so it repeats to the process ad infinitum ... AAAARRGGHH!

Re: Its actually a WMA54 ... can I change the programmer?
You can change the control unit, but they are not cheap,and once fitted it has to be programmed in a certain sequence to make sure it recieves the correct instructions for your model.
Probably cheaper to buy a new washer and start off with a new guarantee.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You've got the BRAND, now we need the MODEL and NUMBER!
And maybe an actual question would be nice!
There are a few "flat" tube TV's but very few that were made several years ago. The vast majority of flat screen TV's don't have a picture tube.
If the screen is physically broken on your flat screen TV it's probably not worth the cost of having it fixed. If it's not physically broken, something else might be wrong.
Lots of designs do not lend themselves readily to such modifications as the motor tends to be a somewhat special design in the matter of speed and physical size and shaft diameter and suchlike.
The engineering to make such modifications are hardly worth the effort considering the cost of a new saw but the few designs using a table saw design and a belt drive from the motor to a power spindle could be worth the effort if a person happened to have a selection of motors to hand.
Lots of manufacturers buy in motors for their tools and if the name of the motor manufacturer is printed somewhere on the motor it might be possible to locate a replacement from a different source at a reasonable cost. In the case of a very expensive tool it could be worth considering a local motor repair or rewind.
If the electronics panel fails then the only remedy is to replace the whole panel.
Although an adept and cognisant lay person may be able to physically carry out this kind of repair, I always caution on the side of one's personal safely.
You are dealing with LETHAL voltages here and it is all too easy for a person un-used to exercising the necessary safety checks and self-disciplines, to make mistakes that can put one's safety or even life at risk.
The cost of a service call to check whether it is worth fixing may not only save you further worry.........it may save from self-injury or even your life.
And is not all of that worth at least the cost of a Service Call ?
It could mean that either the bearings or the spider needs to be replaced. If you try to spin the wash basket by hand, does it turn smooth and quiet or do you hear a rumble sound? If it is noisy, it probally needs a bearing change. To change the bearing, the washer has to be taken completely appart to get access to the bearing. The parts cost are relatively inexpensive, but the labor costs is high due to the time to disassemble and reassemble the washer. If you are handy, and have the tools, you can buy the parts and do it yourself. You have to decide whether it is worth spending the time and money to fix or to purchase a new machine.
Your model which we call the 417, is not usually easy to work on. The heating element is located behind the dryer drum. The drum has to be removed to change the element. There is a lot involved but given the cost of a stack unit the element and labor may be worth it.
Hi does the machine fill with water? If the machine programme dial does not move then it is more than likely to be the heat cycle that needs looking at!
If you are local to me then we can arrange a visit to repair.
Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.
